## Shareholders Vs Stakeholders model

Shareholders theory was introduced in 1970 by Milton Friedman. According to shareholders theory, Corporation has one responsibility that is to use resources for pursuing activities to increase its profits. Corporations should compete with other competitors without using any fraudulent activities. The aim of this model is to maximize the interest of the shareholders keeping in limits of social values and norms. This is one of the dominant theory and used by many businesses. This has been observed in the United States of American that many executives of different organizations consider their tasks or intentions for the welfare of the employees (Smith, 2003).

On the other hand, stakeholder’s theory was introduced in 1988 by Edward Freeman. Stakeholders are people that provide supports to the business. Examples of stakeholders include employees, suppliers, customers, shareholders, community, and an environment. According to this theory, Corporation has the duty of balancing the interest of shareholders and stakeholders. There is a continuous debate on implementing one out of two theories from them. These two models of corporate governance have different assumptions (Stout, 2012, p. 19).

Assumption of shareholders theory

The first assumption of shareholders theory is that environmental, the social and human cost of operating business internalized only as per to the extent demand by law. As per this assumption, this model can provide the best return to the society after maximizing shareholders interest. According to this assumption, Corporation should work to maximize revenue and minimize a cost of production with minimization of risk.

One approach to reducing cost is to externalize the cost through means like pollution etc. To increase revenue, goods are provided at higher costs to the society. The second assumption of this theory is that self-interest worked as the prime motivator for human beings. As per this assumption, people of the organization would work in their self-interest to increase the Corporation’s efficiency and society’s value. As per this underlying assumption, every individual can maximize the value of the society by acting within in the self-interest rationally. The third assumption of this model is that a firm is the nexus of contract works on these contracts to maximize profitability.  Furthermore, the US law contains the respect of the shareholders, as their response, share, interest, support and analysis are necessary for sustainability. The behavior of the shareholders of the company should be considered to sustain them. The executive intends to provide immense options and values to shareholders. However, it may create  hurdles for the stakeholders (Smith, 2003).

Assumption of stakeholder’s theory

There are different assumptions underlying this model of Corporate Governance. The first assumption in instrumental theory is that managing stakeholder leads towards greater profits. This theory provides a positive relationship between stakeholder’s satisfaction and profitability of the company. Normative aspect of the theory also contains assumptions. Stakeholder’s theory assumes that all stakeholders have intrinsic value for the Corporation and one stakeholder does not have interest priority over the other stakeholder. On the other hand, the stakeholder consideration and integration with the shareholders is necessary to create the value of the company. Its enables the stakeholders to have active participation in the decision making process tpo create the values of the company of the brand (Smith, 2003).

There are different advantages of shareholders model. Satisfaction of shareholders may leads towards better profitability because shareholders are investors and their satisfaction is necessary for the success of an organization. It provides better profits and growth chances in future. There are different disadvantages like those that are focusing only on profit maximization are not good for Corporation.

Corporations are responsible for providing their role in communities. Working only on profit can effect on customers. Corporation can also reduce their loyal customers. Another disadvantage of this model is that it disturbs stakeholders like suppliers and community. With the passage of time, the government is taking more concern of the social responsibilities and ethical operations.

One advantage of this model is that it cares all stakeholders. It is important to provide importance to all stakeholders for better growth. One important benefit of this theory is that it considers all members external and internal in the progress and better growth. Stakeholder’s theory provides value and creates value for the entire organization. A Much well-reputed organization like Coca-Cola, Starbucks has implemented this theory for better growth. Due to the application of this theory, they can improve their presence in the customers. One of a disadvantage with this theory is its underlying assumptions. This theory may also affect on shareholders satisfaction (Freeman, Harrison, Wicks, Parmar, & Colle, 2010, pp. 128-129).

Due to the consideration of stakeholders, the management of the company can contain the delayed decisions. This can create the problems for both, the management and the shareholders to take the immediate actions against the competitors (Smith, 2003).

Best model

In the 21st century, the best model is Stakeholders model of corporate governance. In this today’s global economy, stakeholder’s theory can provide better financial benefits to the Corporation. It is not advisable to satisfy only shareholders. Wealth can be generated by considering all stakeholders. No doubt, customers play important role in every organization. Customers are also as important as shareholders are. Customers create value in the form of high profits. For better performance, an interest of customers is also very important. Apple Inc has focused on its customers to create value in its organization. This is the best model for the business corporations, as stakeholders can lead the company towards the suitability and success for a long run, even in the intense competition.

Other stakeholders like suppliers and employees are also very important. These are considered only in stakeholder theory. This is the reason why companies like Google, Apple, are investing in their employees. Environmental laws are becoming stricter, and ethics and sustainability are important. This is only possible in stakeholder’s model. Employee’s laws are also demanding implication of stakeholder’s model (Rani & Mishra, 2009, pp. 36-37).

It is concluded that both models are prevailing in the Corporations as Corporate governance models. Shareholders theory only prefers profit maximization on the other hand stakeholders theory prefers all stakeholders. Advantages of stakeholder’s theory are value creation. In this century, stakeholder’s theory should be preferred.

With Good Reason: A Guide to Critical Thinking examines the specific ways we use language to reason about things. The study of logic improves our ability to think. It forces us to pay closer attention to the way language is used (and misused). It helps make us better at providing good reasons for our decisions. With Good Reason: A Guide to Critical Thinking seeks to help you examine and develop these abilities in order to improve them and to avoid being per- suaded by the faulty reasoning of others.

Textbook Features With Good Reason: A Guide to Critical Thinking includes a number of features to help students understand key concepts and think critically:

Everyday Logic boxes give students the opportunity to see principles applied to a variety of real-world scenarios.

A Closer Look boxes give students the chance to explore more in-depth concepts and issues in critical thinking.

Figures illustrate a variety of concepts in easy-to-understand ways.

Practice Problems provide an opportunity for students to exercise the knowledge they have learned in each chapter.

Knowledge Checks test preconceptions about and comprehension of each chapter’s top- ics and lead to a personalized reading plan based on these results.

Moral of the Story boxes and Chapter Summaries review the key ideas and takeaways in each chapter.

Interactive Features in the e-book allow students to engage with the content on a more dynamic level. Animated scenarios in Logic in Action show students how logic might be used in real life.

Section 1.1 What Is Critical Thinking?

This book will introduce you to the tools and practices of critical thinking. Since the main tool for critical thinking is logical reasoning, the better part of this book will be devoted to discuss- ing logic and how to use it effectively to become a critical thinker.

We will start by examining the practical importance of critical thinking and the virtues it requires us to nurture. Then we will explore what logic is and how the tools of logic can help us lead easier and happier lives. We will also briefly review a critical concept in logic—the argument—and discuss the importance of language in making good judgments. We will con- clude with a snapshot of the historical roots of logic in philosophy.

1.1 What Is Critical Thinking? What is critical thinking? What is a critical thinker? Why do you need a guide to think criti- cally? These are good questions, but ones that are seldom asked. Sometimes people are afraid to ask questions because they think that doing so will make them seem ignorant to others. But admitting you do not know something is actually the only way to learn new things and better understand what others are trying to tell you.

There are differing views about what critical thinking is. For the most part, people take bits and pieces of these views and carry on with their often imprecise—and sometimes conflicting— assumptions of what critical thinking may be. However, one of the ideas we will discuss in this book is the fundamental importance of seeking truth. To this end, let us unpack the term critical thinking to better understand its meaning.

First, the word thinking can describe any number of cognitive activities, and there is certainly more than one way to think. We can think analytically, creatively, strategically, and so on (Sousa, 2011). When we think analytically, we take the whole that we are examining—this could be a term, a situation, a scientific phenomenon—and attempt to identify its components. The next step is to examine each component individually and understand how it fits with the other com- ponents. For example, we are currently examining the meaning of each of the words in the term critical thinking so we can have a better understanding of what they mean together as a whole.

Analytical thinking is the kind of thinking mostly used in academia, science, and law (includ- ing crime scene investigation). In ordinary life, however, you engage in analytical thinking more often than you imagine. For example, think of a time when you felt puzzled by some- one else’s comment. You might have tried to recall the original situation and then parsed out the language employed, the context, the mood of the speaker, and the subject of the com- ment. Identifying the different parts and looking at how each is related to the other, and how together they contribute to the whole, is an act of analytical thinking.

When we think creatively, we are not focused on relationships between parts and their wholes, as we are when we think analytically. Rather, we try to free our minds from any boundaries such as rules or conventions. Instead, our tools are imagination and innovation. Suppose you are cooking, and you do not have all the ingredients called for in your recipe. If you start thinking creatively, you will begin to look for things in your refrigerator and pantry that can substitute for the missing ingredients. But in order to do this, you must let go of the recipe’s expected outcome and conceive of a new direction.

har85668_01_c01_001-024.indd 2 4/9/15 11:19 AM

Section 1.1 What Is Critical Thinking?

When we think strategically, our focus is to first lay out a master plan of action and then break it down into smaller goals that are organized in such a way as to support our outcomes. For exam- ple, undertaking a job search involves strategic planning. You must identify due dates for applications, request let- ters of recommendations, prepare your résumé and cover letters, and so on. Thinking strategically likely extends to many activities in your life, whether you are going grocery shopping or planning a wedding.

What, then, does it mean to think criti- cally? In this case the word critical has nothing to do with criticizing others in a negative way or being surly or cynical.

Rather, it refers to the habit of carefully evaluating ideas and beliefs, both those we hear from others and those we formulate on our own, and only accepting those that meet certain stan- dards. While critical thinking can be viewed from a number of different perspectives, we will define critical thinking as the activity of careful assessment and self-assessment in the process of forming judgments. This means that when we think critically, we become the vigilant guard- ians of the quality of our thinking.

Simply put, the “critical” in critical thinking refers to a healthy dose of suspicion. This means that critical thinkers do not simply accept what they read or hear from others—even if the information comes from loved ones or is accompanied by plausible-sounding statistics. Instead, critical thinkers check the sources of information. If none are given or the sources are weak or unreliable, they research the information for themselves. Perhaps most importantly, critical thinkers are guided by logical reasoning.

As a critical thinker, always ask yourself what is unclear, not understood, or unknown. This is the first step in critical thinking because you cannot make good judgments about things that you do not understand or know.

The Importance of Critical Thinking Why should you care about critical thinking? What can it offer you? Suppose you must make an important decision—about your future career, the person with whom you might want to spend the rest of your life, your financial investments, or some other critical matter. What considerations might come to mind? Perhaps you would wonder whether you need to think about it at all or whether you should just, as the old saying goes, “follow your heart.” In doing so, you are already clarifying the nature of your decision: purely rational, purely emotional, or a combination of both.

Critical thinking involves carefully assessing information and its sources.

har85668_01_c01_001-024.indd 3 4/9/15 11:19 AM

Section 1.1 What Is Critical Thinking?

In following this process you are already starting to think critically. First you started by asking questions. Once you examine the answers, you would then assess whether this information is sufficient, and perhaps proceed to research further information from reli- able sources. Note that in all of these steps, you are making distinctions: You would distinguish between relevant and irrelevant questions, and from the relevant questions, you would distin- guish the clear and precise ones from the others. You also would distinguish the answers that are helpful from those that are not. And finally, you would separate out the good sources for your research, leaving aside the weak and biased ones.

Making distinctions also determines the path that your examination will follow, and herein lies the connection between critical thinking and logic. If you decide you should examine the best reasons that support each of the possible options available, then this choice takes you in the direction of logic. One part of logical reasoning is the weighing of evidence. When making an important decision, you will need to identify which factors you consider favorable and which you consider unfavorable. You can then see which option has the strongest evidence in its favor (see Everyday Logic: Evidence, Beliefs, and Good Thinking for a discussion of the importance of evidence).

Consider the following scenario. You are 1 year away from graduating with a degree in busi- ness. However, you have a nagging feeling that you are not cut out for business. Based on your research, a business major is practical and can lead to many possibilities for well-paid employment. But you have discovered that you do not enjoy the application or the analysis of quantitative methods—something that seems to be central to most jobs in business. What should you do?

Many would seek advice from trusted people in their lives—people who know them well and thus theoretically might suggest the best option for them. But even those closest to us can offer conflicting advice. A practical parent may point out that it would be wasteful and possibly risky to switch to another major with only 1 more year to go. A reflective friend may point out that the years spent studying business could be considered simply part of a journey of self-discovery, an investment of time that warded off years of unhappiness after gradua- tion. In these types of situations, critical thinking and logical reasoning can help you sort out competing considerations and avoid making a haphazard decision.

We all find ourselves at a crossroads at various times in our lives, and whatever path we choose will determine the direction our lives will take. Some rely on their emotions to help them make their decisions. Granted, it is difficult to deny the power of emotions. We recall more vividly those moments or things in our lives that have had the strongest emotional

Can you recall a time when you acted or made a decision while you were experiencing strong emotions? Relying on our emotions to make decisions undermines our ability to develop confidence in our rational judgments. Moreover, emotional decisions cannot typically be justified and often lead to regret.

Section 1.1 What Is Critical Thinking?

impact: a favorite toy, a first love, a painful loss. Many interpret gut feelings as revelations of what they need to do. It is thus easy to assume that emotions can lead us to truth. Indeed, emotions can reveal phenomena that may be otherwise inaccessible. Empathy, for example, permits us to share or recognize the emotions that others are experiencing (Stein, 1989).

The problem is that, on their own, emotions are not reliable sources of information. Emotions can lead you only toward what feels right or what feels wrong—but cannot guarantee that what feels right or wrong is indeed the right or wrong thing to do. For example, acting self- ishly, stealing, and lying are all actions that can bring about good feelings because they satisfy our self-serving interests. By contrast, asking for forgiveness or forgiving someone can feel wrong because these actions can unleash feelings of embarrassment, humiliation, and vulner- ability. Sometimes emotions can work against our best interests. For example, we are often fooled by false displays of goodwill and even affection, and we often fall for the emotional appeal of a politician’s rhetoric.

The best alternative is the route marked by logical reasoning, the principal tool for developing critical thinking. The purpose of this book is to help you learn this valuable tool. You may be wondering, “What’s in it for me?” For starters, you are bound to gain the peace of mind that comes from knowing that your decisions are not based solely on a whim or a feeling but have the support of the firmer ground of reason. Despite the compelling nature of your own emo- tional barometer, you may always wonder whether you made the right choice, and you may not find out until it is too late. Moreover, the emotional route for decision making will not help you develop confidence in your own judgments in the face of uncertainty.

In contrast, armed with the skill of logical reasoning, you can lead a life that you choose and not a life that just happens to you. This power alone can make the difference between a happy and an unhappy life. Mastering critical thinking results in practical gains—such as the ability to defend your views without feeling intimidated or inadequate and to protect yourself from manipulation or deception. This is what’s in it for you, and this is only the beginning.

Everyday Logic: Evidence, Beliefs, and Good Thinking

It is wrong always, everywhere, and for anyone to believe anything on insufficient evidence. —W. K. Clifford (1879, p. 186)

British philosopher and mathematician W. K. Clifford’s claim—that it is unethical to believe anything if you do not have sufficient evidence for it—elicited a pronounced response from the philosophical community. Many argued that Clifford’s claim was too strong and that it is acceptable to believe things for which we lack the requisite evidence. Whether or not one absolutely agrees with Clifford, he raises a good point. Every day, millions of people make deci- sions based on insufficient evidence. They claim that things are true or false without putting in the time, effort, and research necessary to make those claims with justification.

You have probably witnessed an argument in which people continue to make the same claims until they either begin to become upset or merely continue to restate their positions without adding anything new to the discussion. These situations often devolve and end with state- ments such as, “Well, I guess we will just agree to disagree” or “You are entitled to your opin- ion, and I am entitled to mine, and we will just have to leave it at that.” However, upon further reflection we have to ask ourselves, “Are people really entitled to have any opinion they want?”

Section 1.1 What Is Critical Thinking?

From the perspective of critical thinking, the answer is no. Although people are legally entitled to their beliefs and opinions, it would be intellectually irresponsible of them to feel entitled to an opinion that is unsupported by logical reasoning and evidence; people making this claim are conflating freedom of speech with freedom of opinion. A simple example will illustrate this point. Suppose someone believes that the moon is composed of green cheese. Although he is legally entitled to his belief that the moon is made of green cheese, he is not rationally entitled to that belief, since there are many reasons to believe and much evidence to show that the moon is not composed of green cheese.

Good thinkers constantly question their beliefs and examine multiple sources of evidence to ensure their beliefs are true. Of course, people often hold beliefs that seem warranted but are later found not to be true, such as that the earth is flat, that it is acceptable to paint baby cribs with lead paint, and so on. However, a good thinker is one who is willing to change his or her views when those views are proved to be false. There are certain criteria that must be met for us to claim that someone is entitled to a specific opinion or position on an issue.

There are other examples where the distinction is not so clear. For instance, some people believe that women should be subservient to men. They hold this belief for many reasons, but the pre- dominant one is because specific religions claim this is the case. Does the fact that a religious text claims that women should serve men provide sufficient evidence for one to believe this claim? Many people believe it does not. However, many who interpret their religious texts in this man- ner would claim that these texts do provide sufficient evidence for such claims.

Strategic Plan Part I: Proposal of New Division

Strategic Plan Part I: Proposal of New Division

Companies form multiple new divisions in order to market different products and services. Whereas some business organizations and or corporations create new divisions due to geographic location, types of products and services they are dealing with, and market demographics, majority create autonomous business divisions with an aim to have a competitive advantage over their rivals. As Keefer notes, adding a separate division in an existing company allows an enterprise to grow without significantly having to transform its existing corporate structure (2018). Sweet Beverages Limited is a soft drink company whose contribution to environmental conservation in the past has not been substantial. As a result, the company has experienced decline in the beverage industry especially with the entry of competitors who are keen on maintaining a clean environment. In this respect, SB needs to form a new division in order to reshape its approach to package its beverage products. The goal of the new division is to help the company to collect and recycle 100 percent of all of its packaging by 2025. The purpose of this paper is to propose a new division for the SB Ltd and explain the significance of the division’s environmental-oriented vision, mission and values while determining the business model for the new section.

The new division at the Sweet Beverages Ltd should be known as the Waste Free Planet and is intended to spearhead an organizational effort to ensure a clean environment, a world free from waste. Most company’s in the soft drink business use plastic containers to package their soft drink products (Hopewell, Dvorak, & Kosior, 2009). This means, the environment is bound to be affected particularly when customers dispose the cans haphazardly after drinking their favorite contents. Evidently, a sizeable number of people care less about their surroundings and will often clutter the environment with waste even when clear disposal measures have been put in place by the local authorities (Ferreira, Cabral, da Cruz, Simoes, & Margues, 2016). Such people are valuable customers for the SB and it is upon the company to come up with a strategy to help them rid their surroundings off waste. Besides, the fact that the environment in most parts of the world is cluttered with used SB-branded plastic packaging cans has enormously affected the company thus decreasing sales over the time. This is because SB is viewed as an environmentally insensitive beverage dealer.

As mentioned above, the mission of the Waste Free Planet section, thus, should be to drive an effort to ensure a clean environment and a waste-free world in general. The service for the WFP subdivision of the wider SB Company is waste recycling. Specifically, the department should encourage its customers to drop used cans in SB-branded waste collection bins placed in strategic points in various urban centers across the world. The division will, then, collect and ferry the plastic cans to the company’s manufacturing sites for recycling and packaging. The recycled packaging service will be one of its kind in the SB business. It is worth of note that such should begin with the understanding that beverage as well as food containers are an essential part of people’s contemporary living (Aamio & Hamalaien, 2008). Nevertheless, something ought to be done so that packaging waste can be reduced on a global scale (Business Wire, 2018). One of the SB’s most worthy competitors, the Coca-Cola, has already started a similar program to reduce waste (Business Wire, 2018). In this respect, SB should also recognize that the world has packaging challenges and every firm has a responsibility to help in finding innovative solutions for the problems such as the environmental one. WFP is therefore an innovative customer-focused division that will help the SB to play such a role efficiently.

As mentioned earlier, companies form new divisions in order to have competitive advantage. For any company desiring to get a competitive edge in the market, it must ensure that it has satisfactorily addressed customer needs. The WFP division ought to aim at the same thing. Basically, cans and or bottles, whether plastic or glass, should not harm the planet. Beverage consumers around the world care more about the planet and that is one of the needs that business companies ought to acknowledge and meet (Ferreira et al, 2016). In this regard, the WFT section intends to demonstrate to the consumers that Sweet Beverages also cares for the planet, specifically their (customers) environment. The division will achieve this goal by demonstrating to the consumers that a litter-free planet is possible in line with their expectations (Business Wire, 2018). Another customer need that matches with the WFP’s core objective is related to health and wellbeing. Many people expect to buy and consume beverages and food in a serene environment. This is in recognition that contaminated settings pose health risks to individuals particularly when they take their drinks or food in them. By recycling packaging containers, the WFP division will have provided a serene environment for its consumers to buy and drink, freely, the SB’s products anywhere without the fear of health risks.

Encouraging consumers on the need to recycle packaging will not only meet consumer needs but also help the company to achieve competitive advantage (Hopewell et al, 2009). As usual, not many companies have invested in recycled packaging. Bearing in mind many soft drink enterprises have not embraced such a sustainable method of packaging their products, the SB will have an added advantage in the market. Foremost, it is important to note that recycled packaging is cheaper than making new packaging containers (Hopewell et al, 2009). This means, the company will maximize on profits unlike its competitors who will still be manufacturing new packaging containers for their products. Cheaper recycled packaging will translate in reduced prices on the Sweet Beverages products. In consequence, this will attract more customers towards the company due to the discounted prices. As the demand for affordable and quality beverages packaged in better built recycled cans soars, the SB Company will make more sales and rake in profits than majority of its competitors in the market.

The division’s overall vision is to invest in packaging as well as in the planet. By investing in recycled packaging, the company will aim to achieve its packaging goal which is to collect and recycle 100 percent of its recyclable containers by 2025. Evidently, the company will develop better and attractive bottles, either by recycling or through plant-based resin (Hopewell et al, 2009). In the end, the SB Company will, by 2025, set a new world standard for beverage packaging since most of its packaging containers are recyclable. Meanwhile, the SB’s effort to invest in the planet will guarantee a safe and liter-free planet. Specifically, the soft drink maker should invest both resources and skills towards the 100 percent collection and recycling target. Specifically, money and expertise in marketing will be needed to aid consumers in understanding what is to be recycled, how and where to do it (Business Wire, 2018). The WFP section must support collection of cans for recycling throughout the industry. This is to say, even packaging for the SB’s competitors should be collected and recycled.

The Sweet Beverages’ Waste Free Planet division will be a major step for the company’s overall efforts in environmental sustainability. Actually, this initiative aligns not only with the SB’s business mission but also its sustainability concerns. The company aims to serve its customers in an exceptional way, meeting their beverage-drinking needs always and anywhere throughout the world. Ecologically, the SB purposes to create a clean environmental that ensures all people, both loyal and potential customers, lead healthy lives, their localities notwithstanding. Similarly, the WFP business objective is to serve SB’s customers and meet their daily soft drink needs in a sustainable way. Already, the company has achieved most of its sustainable goals and objectives. For instance, the SB has accomplished and long surpassed its water replenishment objectives ahead of time. Recycled packaging will add on to the company’s wider strategy to expand by playing a significant role in ensuring the planet is clean.

Summing up, the Sweet Beverages Ltd must work with all the relevant stakeholders to ensure the success of the Waste Free Planet’s tasks. Nonetheless, it is the division itself that ought to be at the forefront in ensuring its mission as well as its vision and values are in the context of culture, social corporate responsibility and ethics within the communities where the company conducts its business operations. Obviously, the division must work with the local communities and involve them fully in every bit of the program. That way the WFP department will be in a position to learn about communities’ cultures and practices and align its responsibilities with them. Besides, the new section must work closely with partners, customers and other stakeholders in order to address and promote CSR and uphold ethical principles in its business obligations.

## find an expression for t1, the tension in cable 1, that does not depend on t2.

A chandelier with mass m is attached to the ceiling of a large concert hall by two cables. Because the ceiling is covered with intricate architectural decorations (not indicated in the figure, which uses a humbler depiction), the workers who hung the chandelier couldn’t attach the cables to the ceiling directly above the chandelier. Instead, they attached the cables to the ceiling near the walls. Cable 1 has tension T1 and makes an angle of θ1 with the ceiling. Cable 2 has tension T2 and makes an angle of θ2 with the ceiling.

Find an expression for T1, the tension in cable 1, that does not depend on T2.
Express your answer in terms of some or all of the variables m, θ1, and θ2, as well as the magnitude of the acceleration due to gravity g. You must use parentheses around θ1 and θ2, when they are used as arguments to any trigonometric functions in your answer.

I understand the formula to plug all of the information into but I am having trouble canceling out T2 and Ive been working on this problem for two days now any help appreciated!

LAB ASSIGNMENT 7

Single-Hop Network for Sensing Luminosity Objective:

• To program two wireless sensor nodes that measure luminosity and send the measurements to a sink in a single-hop manner

Required Hardware:

• MIB520 USB Interface Board • 3 IRIS Wireless Sensor Nodes • 2 MD100CB Sensor Boards • 4 AA Batteries • USB Cable • PC

Required Software:

• Linux Ubuntu • Eclipse SDK • TinyOS

Procedure:

1. Set up the development system as instructed in steps 1 through 9 of lab assignment 1. 2. Create a TinyOS project to implement your SensingLuminosity application as instructed in step

10 of lab assignment 1. The name of your project should be SensingLuminosityYourFirstName (e.g., the instructor’s project title would be SensingLuminosityGustavo).

3. Create the source files of your project as indicated in step 11 of lab assignment 1. The names of the module and configuration files should be as follows:

• Module file: “SensingLuminosityC” • Configuration file: “SensingLuminosityAppC” • Header file: “SensingLuminosity” • Makefile

The source code of the previous three files can be found in the last pages of this document. The source code of the module file SensingLuminosityC is not complete. You need to complete it as explained in the next step.

4. The module controls the operation of the application. It starts the radio at boot time, and it starts a periodic timer when the radio has been initialized. A measurement of the luminosity is requested every time the timer fires, and once all the measurements that can fit in one packet have been obtained, the packet is transmitted. The code is not complete in the events Timer.fired() and ReadLuminosity.readDone(error_t error, uint16_t sample). The missing code is supposed to request the luminosity measurements and store the completed measurements respectively. You need to review all the source code in the module and configuration files in order to be able to complete the source code. Tip: You can access the TinyOS source files in the TinyOS libraries to find out how you can request and process a completed measurement. The TinyOS project, which includes the

libraries, is available at https://github.com/tinyos/tinyos-main. You can use the search tool. For example, you can search for “interface Read” and “DemoSensorC”.

5. To program the wireless sensor nodes, the two ports assigned to the MIB520 board need to be set with read and write attributes as instructed in step 15 of lab assignment 1. Important: You will need to repeat this step anytime you disconnect and connect the MIB520 board back to the PC.

6. Now, install the project on two nodes using the node IDs assigned by the instructor and verify

that they work as expected using the Oscilloscope application as indicated in step 7. Also, you need to make the constant AM_LUMINOSITY different from that one of your classmates. Otherwise, your Oscilloscope will show measurements of not only your project but those of other students who have the same AM_LUMINOSITY value. You should AM_LUMINOSITY equal to one of the node IDs assigned to you in lab assignment 3 plus 0x90. Important: You need to connect the MDA100CB sensor board to the node after you program it and before you turn it on. The sensor board has the photoresistor to measure luminosity.

7. Install the BaseStation application in one of your nodes. 8. Download into your src folder the following two files available on MyLMU Connect:

• Oscilloscope.h • java.zip

Make sure all values in Oscilloscope.h match the corresponding values in SensingLuminosity.h. Pay special attention to AM_OSCILLOSCOPE in Oscilloscope.h. It needs to be equal to AM_LUMINOSITY in SensingLuminosity.h. Uncompress the file java.zip. Uncompressing java.zip generates a folder called java. Using the Ubuntu file manager, go to the uncompressed java folder and right click on the file called run. Select the option Properties. A window will open. Go to the tab called Permissions and make sure that the checkbox called Execute is checked. Close the properties window. Now go back to the terminal window and open a new tab by clicking on File -> Open Tab. Go to the uncompressed java folder. Compile the Oscilloscope application by executing the following two commands:

• make clean • make

To run the Oscilloscope application, you need to run the SerialForwarder first. The SerialForwarder is a server application that is part of TinyOS. You should connect it to the Base Station with the command below. Once connected to the Base Station, client applications can connect to the SerialForwarder. All client applications that connect, will receive a copy of the stream of packets that the BaseStation listens to. In this lab assignment, you will connect only one client. This is the Oscilloscope application. Open a new tab in your terminal window as indicated previously and execute the following command (the Base Station must be connected):

• java net.tinyos.sf.SerialForwarder –comm serial@/dev/ttyUSB1:iris Finally, go back to the tab for the Oscilloscope and execute the following command:

• ./run 9. Verify that the nodes are measuring luminosity with the Oscilloscope. First, you need to set the

vertical scale of the Oscilloscope from 0 to 4000, and then cover the photoresistor with your hand and check whether the measurements drop. The previous upper limit of 4000 may need to be changed depending on the amount of light in the laboratory.

10. Take a snapshot of the Oscilloscope application showing variations on the luminosity of the two sensor nodes. Take a picture with your cellphone showing how you changed the amount of lighthttps://github.com/tinyos/tinyos-main

on the photo resistor. You need to include these pictures in the section on experimental evaluation of your report.

11. Obtain the signature from the instructor to show that all steps where completed successfully.

______________________________________________________ Instructor’s Signature Date

12. Shut down the system as follows:

• Close all open files in Eclipse • Close all open folders of your project in Eclipse • Close your project in Eclipse • Exit Eclipse: File -> Exit • Exit the terminal window: enter the command exit • Close any other programs such as file manager, Internet browser, etc. • Press the Ubuntu button at the right top of the screen • Select the Shut down option

Report: The lab report needs to include the following sections: title, abstract, introduction (i.e., problem statement and relevance of the problem), system description (i.e., what hardware and software are used, how they connect and interact, and what can be done with the whole system), proposed solution (e.g., flow chart) including source code and its explanation, experimental evaluation, and conclusions. The report needs to be submitted in the IEEE format, available at http://www.ieee.org/publications_standards/publications/authors/author_templates.html The title should be “Lab Assignment 7: Single-Hop Network for Sensing Luminosity” The introduction needs to:

• summarize the objective of the assignment in one paragraph • explain in one paragraph why you think it is important to learn how to meet that objective, i.e.,

what do you think you are learning from this assignment? how is it useful? • give an outline of the report in one paragraph; for example, the outline could start with “This

report is organized as follows. In Section II, a description of the hardware and software used is provided. Section III describes the solution that was implemented to install the nesC application …”

The system description needs to describe the architecture of the system including software and hardware. You need to explain the purpose of each hardware and software element and the purpose of the system as a whole. Make sure you include the MDA100CB sensor board in your explanation. The proposed solution needs to explain in your own words the C and nesC code in the header, module, and configuration files. Also, all the steps followed to install and verify the correct operation of the code need to be explained in your own words. These steps correspond to those of the procedure listed in this assignment. Therefore, you need to explain each step in your own words.http://www.ieee.org/publications_standards/publications/authors/author_templates.html

The experimental evaluation needs to explain how you evaluated experimentally that the objective stated in the introduction was actually met. This explanation needs to include all the steps you followed. Finally, you need to report what the results were. You should show proof of the results. In this case, you should include the pictures you took when you ran the Oscilloscope application. The conclusions should be a one-paragraph summary of the whole lab assignment. The abstract should be a one-paragraph summary of the following sections: objective of the assignment, system description, proposed solution, experimental evaluation. Finally, you need to attach to your report the signed lab guide in order to show that you completed the whole procedure in the lab.

Which of the following will most likely occur in the US as the result of an unexpected rapid growth— an increase in aggregate demand and output in the short run 2. Within the AD/AS model, if consumers increase their savings and cut back on their spending, the real interest rate will decrease and thereby cushion the reduction in consumption spending 3. In the economy were operating at a point in figure 10-9 resource prices would tend to – increase and move the economy toward point c 4. During the 1990s a financial crisis spread throughout Asia causing those economies to drop into recession—both real output and the price level would have fallen. 5. Which of the following is most likely to accompany an unanticipated increase in short-run aggregate supply.- an increase in real GDP 6. At which point in figure 10-2 is the economy at long-run equilibrium- F 7. If improvements in education and training programs increased the productivity of persons in the labor force—both short-run and long-run aggragte supply 8. The short-run effect of a sudden increase in stock prices will be – an increase in both output prices 9. Which of the following statements is most consistent with the view that the economy has a self-corrective- when the economy is in a recession, falling resource prices and declioning interest rate 10. If the economy is simultaneously in long-run and short-run equilibrium which of the following is true? Aggregate quantity demanded is equal to potential output 11. Within the framework of the Keynesian model, which of the following would most likely occur if the federal government increased its spending— the rate of inflation would rise 12. According to Keynesian view, if an economy was operating at long-run equilibrium, an increase in government expenditures would—be inflationary 13. Keynesian analysis indicates that an unexpected decline in aggregate demand will lead to- an increase in inventories and a reduction in output 14. If policy makers believe that an inflationary boom is about to begin, the Keynesian view indicates that they—decrease government spending and/or raise taces 15. The prevailing budget philosophy prior to Keynes called for a balanced budget. Keynes argued that the government—economic recessions 16. A major advantage of built in or automatic stabilizers is that they- required no congressional action to be effective. 17. Within the framework of the Keynesian model, if spending is abnormally low- equilibrium output will be less than the full-employment rate of output 18. When the unemployment rate is low, the impact of additional spending on real output will be smaller than when the unemployment rate is high 19. Unemployment compensation payments rise during a recession and thereby help stimulate consumption 20. Suppose long-run equilibrium is present and the government budget is in balance. Which of the following—a budget deficit 21. The crowding out effect refers to the tendency of – the additional borrowing accompanying larger budget deficits to increase interest rates 22. Reductions in personal income tax rates that increase supply and work effort, can be expected to also increase consumption spending 23. If a reduction in government borrowing leads to lower real interest rates in the US— the dollar will depreciate in the foreign exchange market. 24. If heavy federal borrowing pushes up real interest rates in the Us, which of the following will most likely result? – an inflow of capital and an appreciation in the foreign exchange value of the dollar 25. Which of the following tends to make the size of a shift in aggregate demand resulting from a tax change smaller than would otherwise be the case—the crowding-out effect 26. If the output of the economy is y1 which of the following would a new classical economy—continuation of the current tax and expenditure policies 27. Keynesian critics would aruge that expansion in government debt during a recession would lead to – higher failure interest payments and tax rates 28. Politicians often instruct households to spend in order to help the economy.. this advice overlooks the fact that—you cannot have strong economy if all or most household are spending just about 29. The new classical model implies that a shift to a more expansionary fiscal policy will – exert little or no impact on the real interest rate, aggregate demand and employment 30. Supply –side economies stresses that marginal tax rates exert important incentive effects that influence real output Categories ## umuc library one search WRTG 393 students, This discussion thread is designed to help you become familiar with OneSearch.

As scientists, they develop and test theories to explain the world around them. As policy advisers, they use their theories to help change the world for the better. The focus of the preceding two chapters has been scientific. We have seen how supply and demand determine the price of a good and the quantity of the good sold. We have also seen how various events shift supply and demand and thereby change the equilibrium price and quantity. And we have developed the concept of elasticity to gauge the size of these changes. This chapter offers our first look at policy. Here we analyze various types of government policy using only the tools of supply and demand. As you will see, the analysis yields some surprising insights. Policies often have effects that their architects did not intend or anticipate. We begin by considering policies that directly control prices. For example, rent-control laws dictate a maximum rent that landlords may charge tenants. Minimum-wage laws dictate the lowest wage that firms may pay workers. Price controls are usually enacted when policymakers believe that the market price of a good or service is unfair to buyers or sellers. Yet, as we will see, these policies can generate inequities of their own. After discussing price controls, we consider the impact of taxes. Policymakers use taxes to raise revenue for public purposes and to influence market outcomes. Although the prevalence of taxes in our economy is obvious, their effects are not. For example, when the government levies a tax on the amount that firms pay their workers, do the firms or the workers bear the burden of the tax? The answer is not at all clear—until we apply the powerful tools of supply and demand. 6-1 Controls on Prices To see how price controls affect market outcomes, let’s look once again at the market for ice cream. As we saw in Chapter 4 , if ice cream is sold in a competitive market free of government regulation, the price of ice cream adjusts to balance supply and demand: At the equilibrium price, the quantity of ice cream that buyers want to buy exactly equals the quantity that sellers want to sell. To be concrete, let’s suppose that the equilibrium price is$3 per cone.

Some people may not be happy with the outcome of this free-market process. The American Association of Ice-Cream Eaters complains that the $3 price is too high for everyone to enjoy a cone a day (their recommended daily allowance). Meanwhile, the National Organization of Ice-Cream Makers complains that the$3 price—the result of “cutthroat competition”—is too low and is depressing the incomes of its members. Each of these groups lobbies the government to pass laws that alter the market outcome by directly controlling the price of an ice-cream cone.

Because buyers of any good always want a lower price while sellers want a higher price, the interests of the two groups conflict. If the Ice-Cream Eaters are successful in their lobbying, the government imposes a legal maximum on the price at which ice-cream cones can be sold. Because the price is not allowed to rise above this level, the legislated maximum is called a  price ceiling . By contrast, if the Ice-Cream Makers are successful, the government imposes a legal minimum on the price. Because the price cannot fall below this level, the legislated minimum is called a  price floor . Let us consider the effects of these policies in turn.

price ceiling

a legal maximum on the price at which a good can be sold

price floor

a legal minimum on the price at which a good can be sold

6-1a How Price Ceilings Affect Market Outcomes

When the government, moved by the complaints and campaign contributions of the Ice-Cream Eaters, imposes a price ceiling on the market for ice cream, two outcomes are possible. In panel (a) of  Figure 1 , the government imposes a price ceiling of $4 per cone. In this case, because the price that balances supply and demand ($3) is below the ceiling, the price ceiling is not binding. Market forces naturally move the economy to the equilibrium, and the price ceiling has no effect on the price or the quantity sold.

Panel (b) of  Figure 1  shows the other, more interesting, possibility. In this case, the government imposes a price ceiling of $2 per cone. Because the equilibrium price of$3 is above the price ceiling, the ceiling is a binding constraint on the market. The forces of supply and demand tend to move the price toward the equilibrium price, but when the market price hits the ceiling, it cannot, by law, rise any further. Thus, the market price equals the price ceiling. At this price, the quantityof ice cream demanded (125 cones in  Figure 1 ) exceeds the quantity supplied (75 cones). There is a shortage: 50 people who want to buy ice cream at the going price are unable to do so.

FIGURE 1 A Market with a Price Ceiling

In panel (a), the government imposes a price ceiling of $4. Because the price ceiling is above the equilibrium price of$3, the price ceiling has no effect, and the market can reach the equilibrium of supply and demand. In this equilibrium, quantity supplied and quantity demanded both equal 100 cones. In panel (b), the government imposes a price ceiling of $2. Because the price ceiling is below the equilibrium price of$3, the market price equals $2. At this price, 125 cones are demanded and only 75 are supplied, so there is a shortage of 50 cones. In response to this shortage, some mechanism for rationing ice cream will naturally develop. The mechanism could be long lines: Buyers who are willing to arrive early and wait in line get a cone, but those unwilling to wait do not. Alternatively, sellers could ration ice-cream cones according to their own personal biases, selling them only to friends, relatives, or members of their own racial or ethnic group. Notice that even though the price ceiling was motivated by a desire to help buyers of ice cream, not all buyers benefit from the policy. Some buyers do get to pay a lower price, although they may have to wait in line to do so, but other buyers cannot get any ice cream at all. This example in the market for ice cream shows a general result: When the government imposes a binding price ceiling on a competitive market, a shortage of the good arises, and sellers must ration the scarce goods among the large number of potential buyers. The rationing mechanisms that develop under price ceilings are rarely desirable. Long lines are inefficient because they waste buyers’ time. Discrimination according to seller bias is both inefficient (because the good does not necessarily go to the buyer who values it most highly) and potentially unfair. By contrast, the rationing mechanism in a free, competitive market is both efficient and impersonal. When the market for ice cream reaches its equilibrium, anyone who wants to pay the market price can get a cone. Free markets ration goods with prices. case study: Lines at the Gas Pump As we discussed in Chapter 5 , in 1973 the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) raised the price of crude oil in world oil markets. Because crude oil is the major input used to make gasoline, the higher oil prices reduced the supply of gasoline. Long lines at gas stations became commonplace, and motorists often had to wait for hours to buy only a few gallons of gas. What was responsible for the long gas lines? Most people blame OPEC. Surely, if OPEC had not raised the price of crude oil, the shortage of gasoline would not have occurred. Yet economists blame U.S. government regulations that limited the price oil companies could charge for gasoline. Figure 2 shows what happened. As shown in panel (a), before OPEC raised the price of crude oil, the equilibrium price of gasoline, P1, was below the price ceiling. The price regulation, therefore, had no effect. When the price of crude oil rose, however, the situation changed. The increase in the price of crude oil raised the cost of producing gasoline, and this reduced the supply of gasoline. As panel (b) shows, the supply curve shifted to the left from S1 to S2. In an unregulated market, this shift in supply would have raised the equilibrium price of gasoline from P1 to P2, and no shortage would have resulted. Instead, the price ceiling prevented the price from rising to the equilibrium level. At the price ceiling, producers were willing to sell QS, and consumers were willing to buy QD. Thus, the shift in supply caused a severe shortage at the regulated price. FIGURE 2 The Market for Gasoline with a Price Ceiling Panel (a) shows the gasoline market when the price ceiling is not binding because the equilibrium price, P1, is below the ceiling. Panel (b) shows the gasoline market after an increase in the price of crude oil (an input into making gasoline) shifts the supply curve to the left from S1 to S2. In an unregulated market, the price would have risen from P1 to P2. The price ceiling, however, prevents this from happening. At the binding price ceiling, consumers are willing to buy QD, but producers of gasoline are willing to sell only QS. The difference between quantity demanded and quantity supplied, QDQS, measures the gasoline shortage. Eventually, the laws regulating the price of gasoline were repealed. Lawmakers came to understand that they were partly responsible for the many hours Americans lost waiting in line to buy gasoline. Today, when the price of crude oil changes, the price of gasoline can adjust to bring supply and demand into equilibrium. case study: Rent Control in the Short Run and the Long Run One common example of a price ceiling is rent control. In many cities, the local government places a ceiling on rents that landlords may charge their tenants. The goal of this policy is to help the poor by making housing more affordable. Economists often criticize rent control, arguing that it is a highly inefficient way to help the poor raise their standard of living. One economist called rent control “the best way to destroy a city, other than bombing.” The adverse effects of rent control are less apparent to the general population because these effects occur over many years. In the short run, landlords have a fixed number of apartments to rent, and they cannot adjust this number quickly as market conditions change. Moreover, the number of people searching for housing in a city may not be highly responsive to rents in the short run because people take time to adjust their housing arrangements. Therefore, the short-run supply and demand for housing are relatively inelastic. Panel (a) of Figure 3 shows the short-run effects of rent control on the housing market. As with any binding price ceiling, rent control causes a shortage. Yet because supply and demand are inelastic in the short run, the initial shortage caused by rent control is small. The primary effect in the short run is to reduce rents. FIGURE 3 Rent Control in the Short Run and in the Long Run Panel (a) shows the short-run effects of rent control: Because the supply and demand curves for apartments are relatively inelastic, the price ceiling imposed by a rent-control law causes only a small shortage of housing. Panel (b) shows the long-run effects of rent control: Because the supply and demand curves for apartments are more elastic, rent control causes a large shortage. The long-run story is very different because the buyers and sellers of rental housing respond more to market conditions as time passes. On the supply side, landlords respond to low rents by not building new apartments and by failing to maintain existing ones. On the demand side, low rents encourage people to find their own apartments (rather than living with their parents or sharing apartments with roommates) and induce more people to move into a city. Therefore, both supply and demand are more elastic in the long run. Panel (b) of Figure 3 illustrates the housing market in the long run. When rent control depresses rents below the equilibrium level, the quantity of apartments supplied falls substantially, and the quantity of apartments demanded rises substantially. The result is a large shortage of housing. In cities with rent control, landlords use various mechanisms to ration housing. Some landlords keep long waiting lists. Others give a preference to tenants without children. Still others discriminate on the basis of race. Sometimes apartments are allocated to those willing to offer under-the-table payments to building superintendents. In essence, these bribes bring the total price of an apartment closer to the equilibrium price. To understand fully the effects of rent control, we have to remember one of the Ten Principles of Economics from Chapter 1 : People respond to incentives. In free markets, landlords try to keep their buildings clean and safe because desirable apartments command higher prices. By contrast, when rent control creates shortages and waiting lists, landlords lose their incentive to respond to tenants’ concerns. Why should a landlord spend money to maintain and improve the property when people are waiting to get in as it is? In the end, tenants get lower rents, but they also get lower-quality housing. Policymakers often react to the effects of rent control by imposing additional regulations. For example, various laws make racial discrimination in housing illegal and require landlords to provide minimally adequate living conditions. These laws, however, are difficult and costly to enforce. By contrast, when rent control is eliminated and a market for housing is regulated by the forces of competition, such laws are less necessary. In a free market, the price of housing adjusts to eliminate the shortages that give rise to undesirable landlord behavior. 6-1b How Price Floors Affect Market Outcomes To examine the effects of another kind of government price control, let’s return to the market for ice cream. Imagine now that the government is persuaded by the pleas of the National Organization of Ice-Cream Makers whose members feel the$3 equilibrium price is too low. In this case, the government might institute a price floor. Price floors, like price ceilings, are an attempt by the government to maintain prices at other than equilibrium levels. Whereas a price ceiling places a legal maximum on prices, a price floor places a legal minimum.

When the government imposes a price floor on the ice-cream market, two outcomes are possible. If the government imposes a price floor of $2 per cone when the equilibrium price is$3, we obtain the outcome in panel (a) of  Figure 4 . In this case, because the equilibrium price is above the floor, the price floor is not binding. Market forces naturally move the economy to the equilibrium, and the price floor has no effect.

Panel (b) of  Figure 4  shows what happens when the government imposes a price floor of $4 per cone. In this case, because the equilibrium price of$3 is below the floor, the price floor is a binding constraint on the market. The forces of supply and demand tend to move the price toward the equilibrium price, but when the market price hits the floor, it can fall no further. The market price equals the price floor. At this floor, the quantity of ice cream supplied (120 cones) exceeds the quantity demanded (80 cones). Some people who want to sell ice cream at the going price are unable to. Thus, a binding price floor causes a surplus.

FIGURE 4 A Market with a Price Floor

In panel (a), the government imposes a price floor of $2. Because this is below the equilibrium price of$3, the price floor has no effect. The market price adjusts to balance supply and demand. At the equilibrium, quantity supplied and quantity demanded both equal 100 cones. In panel (b), the government imposes a price floor of $4, which is above the equilibrium price of$3. Therefore, the market price equals $4. Because 120 cones are supplied at this price and only 80 are demanded, there is a surplus of 40 cones. Just as the shortages resulting from price ceilings can lead to undesirable rationing mechanisms, so can the surpluses resulting from price floors. The sellers who appeal to the personal biases of the buyers, perhaps due to racial or familial ties, may be better able to sell their goods than those who do not. By contrast, in a free market, the price serves as the rationing mechanism, and sellers can sell all they want at the equilibrium price. case study: The Minimum Wage An important example of a price floor is the minimum wage. Minimum- wage laws dictate the lowest price for labor that any employer may pay. The U.S. Congress first instituted a minimum wage with the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938 to ensure workers a minimally adequate standard of living. In 2012, the minimum wage according to federal law was$7.25 per hour. (Some states mandate minimum wages above the federal level.) Most European nations have minimum-wage laws as well, sometimes significantly higher than in the United States. For example, average income in France is 27 percent lower than it is in the United States, but the French minimum wage is 9.40 euros per hour, which is about $12 per hour. To examine the effects of a minimum wage, we must consider the market for labor. Panel (a) of Figure 5 shows the labor market, which, like all markets, is subject to the forces of supply and demand. Workers determine the supply of labor, and firms determine the demand. If the government doesn’t intervene, the wage normally adjusts to balance labor supply and labor demand. Panel (b) of Figure 5 shows the labor market with a minimum wage. If the minimum wage is above the equilibrium level, as it is here, the quantity of labor supplied exceeds the quantity demanded. The result is unemployment. Thus, the minimum wage raises the incomes of those workers who have jobs, but it lowers the incomes of workers who cannot find jobs. To fully understand the minimum wage, keep in mind that the economy contains not a single labor market but many labor markets for different types of workers. The impact of the minimum wage depends on the skill and experience of the worker. Highly skilled and experienced workers are not affected because their equilibrium wages are well above the minimum. For these workers, the minimum wage is not binding. The minimum wage has its greatest impact on the market for teenage labor. The equilibrium wages of teenagers are low because teenagers are among the least skilled and least experienced members of the labor force. In addition, teenagers are often willing to accept a lower wage in exchange for on-the-job training. (Some teenagers are willing to work as “interns” for no pay at all. Because internships pay nothing, however, the minimum wage does not apply to them. If it did, these jobs might not exist.) As a result, the minimum wage is binding more often for teenagers than for other members of the labor force. FIGURE 5 How the Minimum Wage Affects the Labor Market Panel (a) shows a labor market in which the wage adjusts to balance labor supply and labor demand. Panel (b) shows the impact of a binding minimum wage. Because the minimum wage is a price floor, it causes a surplus: The quantity of labor supplied exceeds the quantity demanded. The result is unemployment. Many economists have studied how minimum-wage laws affect the teenage labor market. These researchers compare the changes in the minimum wage over time with the changes in teenage employment. Although there is some debate about how much the minimum wage affects employment, the typical study finds that a 10 percent increase in the minimum wage depresses teenage employment between 1 and 3 percent. In interpreting this estimate, note that a 10 percent increase in the minimum wage does not raise the average wage of teenagers by 10 percent. A change in the law does not directly affect those teenagers who are already paid well above the minimum, and enforcement of minimum-wage laws is not perfect. Thus, the estimated drop in employment of 1 to 3 percent is significant. In addition to altering the quantity of labor demanded, the minimum wage alters the quantity supplied. Because the minimum wage raises the wage that teenagers can earn, it increases the number of teenagers who choose to look for jobs. Studies have found that a higher minimum wage influences which teenagers are employed. When the minimum wage rises, some teenagers who are still attending high school choose to drop out and take jobs. These new dropouts displace other teenagers who had already dropped out of school and who now become unemployed. The minimum wage is a frequent topic of debate. Economists are about evenly divided on the issue. In a 2006 survey of Ph.D. economists, 47 percent favored eliminating the minimum wage, while 14 percent would maintain it at its current level and 38 percent would increase it. Advocates of the minimum wage view the policy as one way to raise the income of the working poor. They correctly point out that workers who earn the minimum wage can afford only a meager standard of living. In 2012, for instance, when the minimum wage was$7.25 per hour, two adults working 40 hours a week for every week of the year at minimum-wage jobs had a total annual income of only $30,160, which was less than two-thirds of the median family income in the United States. Many advocates of the minimum wage admit that it has some adverse effects, including unemployment, but they believe that these effects are small and that, all things considered, a higher minimum wage makes the poor better off. Opponents of the minimum wage contend that it is not the best way to combat poverty. They note that a high minimum wage causes unemployment, encourages teenagers to drop out of school, and prevents some unskilled workers from getting the on-the-job training they need. Moreover, opponents of the minimum wage point out that it is a poorly targeted policy. Not all minimum-wage workers are heads of households trying to help their families escape poverty. In fact, fewer than a third of minimum-wage earners are in families with incomes below the poverty line. Many are teenagers from middle-class homes working at part-time jobs for extra spending money. 6-1c Evaluating Price Controls One of the Ten Principles of Economics discussed in Chapter 1 is that markets are usually a good way to organize economic activity. This principle explains why economists usually oppose price ceilings and price floors. To economists, prices are not the outcome of some haphazard process. Prices, they contend, are the result of the millions of business and consumer decisions that lie behind the supply and demand curves. Prices have the crucial job of balancing supply and demand and, thereby, coordinating economic activity. When policymakers set prices by legal decree, they obscure the signals that normally guide the allocation of society’s resources. IN THE NEWS: Venezuela versus the Market This is what happens when political leaders replace market prices with their own. With Venezuelan Food Shortages, Some Blame Price Controls By William Neuman CARACAS , Venezuela — By 6:30 a.m., a full hour and a half before the store would open, about two dozen people were already in line. They waited patiently, not for the latest iPhone, but for something far more basic: groceries. “Whatever I can get,” said Katherine Huga, 23, a mother of two, describing her shopping list. She gave a shrug of resignation. “You buy what they have.” Venezuela is one of the world’s top oil producers at a time of soaring energy prices, yet shortages of staples like milk, meat and toilet paper are a chronic part of life here, often turning grocery shopping into a hit or miss proposition. Some residents arrange their calendars around the once-a-week deliveries made to government-subsidized stores like this one, lining up before dawn to buy a single frozen chicken before the stock runs out. Or a couple of bags of flour. Or a bottle of cooking oil. The shortages affect both the poor and the well-off, in surprising ways. A supermarket in the upscale La Castellana neighborhood recently had plenty of chicken and cheese—even quail eggs—but not a single roll of toilet paper. Only a few bags of coffee remained on a bottom shelf. Asked where a shopper could get milk on a day when that, too, was out of stock, a manager said with sarcasm, “At Chávez’s house.” At the heart of the debate is President Hugo Chávez’s socialist-inspired government, which imposes strict price controls that are intended to make a range of foods and other goods more affordable for the poor. They are often the very products that are the hardest to find. “Venezuela is too rich a country to have this,” Nery Reyes, 55, a restaurant worker, said outside a government-subsidized store in the working-class Santa Rosalía neighborhood. “I’m wasting my day here standing in line to buy one chicken and some rice.” Venezuela was long one of the most prosperous countries in the region, with sophisticated manufacturing, vibrant agriculture and strong businesses, making it hard for many residents to accept such widespread scarcities. But amid the prosperity, the gap between rich and poor was extreme, a problem that Mr. Chávez and his ministers say they are trying to eliminate. They blame unfettered capitalism for the country’s economic ills and argue that controls are needed to keep prices in check in a country where inflation rose to 27.6 percent last year, one of the highest rates in the world. They say companies cause shortages on purpose, holding products off the market to push up prices. This month, the government required price cuts on fruit juice, toothpaste, disposable diapers and more than a dozen other products. “We are not asking them to lose money, just that they make money in a rational way, that they don’t rob the people,” Mr. Chávez said recently. But many economists call it a classic case of a government causing a problem rather than solving it. Prices are set so low, they say, that companies and producers cannot make a profit. So farmers grow less food, manufacturers cut back production and retailers stock less inventory. Moreover, some of the shortages are in industries, like dairy and coffee, where the government has seized private companies and is now running them, saying it is in the national interest. In January, according to a scarcity index compiled by the Central Bank of Venezuela, the difficulty of finding basic goods on store shelves was at its worst level since 2008. While that measure has eased considerably, many products can still be hard to come by. Datanálisis, a polling firm that regularly tracks scarcities, said that powdered milk, a staple here, could not be found in 42 percent of the stores its researchers visited in early March. Liquid milk can be even harder to find. Other products in short supply last month, according to Datanálisis, included beef, chicken, vegetable oil and sugar. The polling firm also says that the problem is most extreme in the government-subsidized stores that were created to provide affordable food to the poor…. Francisco Rodríguez, an economist with Bank of America Merrill Lynch who studies the Venezuelan economy, said the government might score some political points with the new round of price controls. But over time, he argued, they will spell trouble for the economy. “In the medium to long term, this is going to be a disaster,” Mr. Rodriguez said. The price controls also mean that products missing from store shelves usually show up on the black market at much higher prices, a source of outrage for many. For government supporters, that is proof of speculation. Others say it is the consequence of a misguided policy…. If there is one product that Venezuela should be able to produce in abundance it is coffee, a major crop here for centuries. Until 2009, Venezuela was a coffee exporter, but it began importing large amounts of it three years ago to make up for a decline in production. Farmers and coffee roasters say the problem is simple: retail price controls keep prices close to or below what it costs farmers to grow and harvest the coffee. As a result, many do not invest in new plantings or fertilizer, or they cut back on the amount of land used to grow coffee. Making matters worse, the recent harvest was poor in many areas. A group representing small- to medium-size roasters said last month that there was no domestic coffee left on the wholesale market—the earliest time of year that industry leaders could remember such supplies running out. The group announced a deal with the government to buy imported beans to keep coffee on store shelves. Similar problems have played out with other agricultural products under price controls, like lags in production and rising imports for beef, milk and corn. Waiting in line to buy chicken and other staples, Jenny Montero, 30, recalled how she could not find cooking oil last fall and had to switch from the fried food she prefers to soups and stews. “It was good for me,” she said drily, pushing her 14-month-old daughter in a stroller. “I lost several pounds.” Source: New York Times, April 20, 2012. Another one of the Ten Principles of Economics is that governments can sometimes improve market outcomes. Indeed, policymakers are led to control prices because they view the market’s outcome as unfair. Price controls are often aimed at helping the poor. For instance, rent-control laws try to make housing affordable for everyone, and minimum-wage laws try to help people escape poverty. Yet price controls often hurt those they are trying to help. Rent control may keep rents low, but it also discourages landlords from maintaining their buildings and makes housing hard to find. Minimum-wage laws may raise the incomes of some workers, but they also cause other workers to be unemployed. Helping those in need can be accomplished in ways other than controlling prices. For instance, the government can make housing more affordable by paying a fraction of the rent for poor families. Unlike rent control, such rent subsidies do not reduce the quantity of housing supplied and, therefore, do not lead to housing shortages. Similarly, wage subsidies raise the living standards of the working poor without discouraging firms from hiring them. An example of a wage subsidy is the earned income tax credit, a government program that supplements the incomes of low-wage workers. Although these alternative policies are often better than price controls, they are not perfect. Rent and wage subsidies cost the government money and, therefore, require higher taxes. As we see in the next section, taxation has costs of its own. Quick Quiz Define price ceiling and price floor and give an example of each. Which leads to a shortage? Which leads to a surplus? Why? 6-2 Taxes All governments—from the federal government in Washington, D.C., to the local governments in small towns—use taxes to raise revenue for public projects, such as roads, schools, and national defense. Because taxes are such an important policy instrument, and because they affect our lives in many ways, we return to the study of taxes several times throughout this book. In this section, we begin our study of how taxes affect the economy. To set the stage for our analysis, imagine that a local government decides to hold an annual ice-cream celebration—with a parade, fireworks, and speeches by town officials. To raise revenue to pay for the event, the town decides to place a$0.50 tax on the sale of ice-cream cones. When the plan is announced, our two lobbying groups swing into action. The American Association of Ice-Cream Eaters claims that consumers of ice cream are having trouble making ends meet, and it argues that sellers of ice cream should pay the tax. The National Organization of Ice-Cream Makers claims that its members are struggling to survive in a competitive market, and it argues that buyersof ice cream should pay the tax. The town mayor, hoping to reach a compromise, suggests that half the tax be paid by the buyers and half be paid by the sellers.

To analyze these proposals, we need to address a simple but subtle question: When the government levies a tax on a good, who actually bears the burden of the tax? The people buying the good? The people selling the good? Or if buyers and sellers share the tax burden, what determines how the burden is divided? Can the government simply legislate the division of the burden, as the mayor is suggesting, or is the division determined by more fundamental market forces? The term tax incidence  refers to how the burden of a tax is distributed among the various people who make up the economy. As we will see, some surprising lessons about tax incidence can be learned by applying the tools of supply and demand.

6-2a How Taxes on Sellers Affect Market Outcomes

We begin by considering a tax levied on sellers of a good. Suppose the local government passes a law requiring sellers of ice-cream cones to send $0.50 to the government for each cone they sell. How does this law affect the buyers and sellers of ice cream? To answer this question, we can follow the three steps in Chapter 4 for analyzing supply and demand: (1) We decide whether the law affects the supply curve or demand curve. (2) We decide which way the curve shifts. (3) We examine how the shift affects the equilibrium price and quantity. Step One The immediate impact of the tax is on the sellers of ice cream. Because the tax is not levied on buyers, the quantity of ice cream demanded at any given price is the same; thus, the demand curve does not change. By contrast, the tax on sellers makes the ice-cream business less profitable at any given price, so it shifts the supply curve. Step Two Because the tax on sellers raises the cost of producing and selling ice cream, it reduces the quantity supplied at every price. The supply curve shifts to the left (or, equivalently, upward). In addition to determining the direction in which the supply curve moves, we can also be precise about the size of the shift. For any market price of ice cream, the effective price to sellers—the amount they get to keep after paying the tax—is$0.50 lower. For example, if the market price of a cone happened to be $2.00, the effective price received by sellers would be$1.50. Whatever the market price, sellers will supply a quantity of ice cream as if the price were $0.50 lower than it is. Put differently, to induce sellers to supply any given quantity, the market price must now be$0.50 higher to compensate for the effect of the tax. Thus, as shown in  Figure 6 , the supply curve shiftsupward from S1 to S2 by the exact size of the tax ($0.50). FIGURE 6 A Tax on Sellers When a tax of$0.50 is levied on sellers, the supply curve shifts up by $0.50 from S1 to S2. The equilibrium quantity falls from 100 to 90 cones. The price that buyers pay rises from$3.00 to $3.30. The price that sellers receive (after paying the tax) falls from$3.00 to $2.80. Even though the tax is levied on sellers, buyers and sellers share the burden of the tax. Step Three Having determined how the supply curve shifts, we can now compare the initial and the new equilibriums. Figure 6 shows that the equilibrium price of ice cream rises from$3.00 to $3.30, and the equilibrium quantity falls from 100 to 90 cones. Because sellers sell less and buyers buy less in the new equilibrium, the tax reduces the size of the ice-cream market. Implications We can now return to the question of tax incidence: Who pays the tax? Although sellers send the entire tax to the government, buyers and sellers share the burden. Because the market price rises from$3.00 to $3.30 when the tax is introduced, buyers pay$0.30 more for each ice-cream cone than they did without the tax. Thus, the tax makes buyers worse off. Sellers get a higher price ($3.30) from buyers than they did previously, but what they get to keep after paying the tax is only$2.80 ($3.30 −$0.50 = $2.80), compared with$3.00 before the tax was implemented. Thus, the tax also makes sellers worse off.

To sum up, this analysis yields two lessons:

· • Taxes discourage market activity. When a good is taxed, the quantity of the good sold is smaller in the new equilibrium.

· • Buyers and sellers share the burden of taxes. In the new equilibrium, buyers pay more for the good, and sellers receive less.

6-2b How Taxes on Buyers Affect Market Outcomes

Now consider a tax levied on buyers of a good. Suppose that our local government passes a law requiring buyers of ice-cream cones to send $0.50 to the government for each ice-cream cone they buy. What are the effects of this law? Again, we apply our three steps. Step One The initial impact of the tax is on the demand for ice cream. The supply curve is not affected because, for any given price of ice cream, sellers have the same incentive to provide ice cream to the market. By contrast, buyers now have to pay a tax to the government (as well as the price to the sellers) whenever they buy ice cream. Thus, the tax shifts the demand curve for ice cream. Step Two We next determine the direction of the shift. Because the tax on buyers makes buying ice cream less attractive, buyers demand a smaller quantity of ice cream at every price. As a result, the demand curve shifts to the left (or, equivalently, downward), as shown in Figure 7 . Once again, we can be precise about the size of the shift. Because of the$0.50 tax levied on buyers, the effective price to buyers is now $0.50 higher than the market price (whatever the market price happens to be). For example, if the market price of a cone happened to be$2.00, the effective price to buyers would be $2.50. Because buyers look at their total cost including the tax, they demand a quantity of ice cream as if the market price were$0.50 higher than it actually is. In other words, to induce buyers to demand any given quantity, the market price must now be $0.50 lower to make up for the effect of the tax. Thus, the tax shifts the demand curve downward from D1to D2 by the exact size of the tax ($0.50).

Step Three Having determined how the demand curve shifts, we can now see the effect of the tax by comparing the initial equilibrium and the new equilibrium. You can see in  Figure 7  that the equilibrium price of ice cream falls from $3.00 to$2.80, and the equilibrium quantity falls from 100 to 90 cones. Once again, the tax on ice cream reduces the size of the ice-cream market. And once again, buyers and sellers share the burden of the tax. Sellers get a lower price for their product; buyers pay a lower market price to sellers than they did previously, but the effective price (including the tax buyers have to pay) rises from $3.00 to$3.30.

FIGURE 7 A Tax on Buyers

When a tax of $0.50 is levied on buyers, the demand curve shifts down by$0.50 from D1 to D2. The equilibrium quantity falls from 100 to 90 cones. The price that sellers receive falls from $3.00 to$2.80. The price that buyers pay (including the tax) rises from $3.00 to$3.30. Even though the tax is levied on buyers, buyers and sellers share the burden of the tax.

Implications If you compare  Figures 6  and  7 , you will notice a surprising conclusion: Taxes levied on sellers and taxes levied on buyers are equivalent. In both cases, the tax places a wedge between the price that buyers pay and the price that sellers receive. The wedge between the buyers’ price and the sellers’ price is the same, regardless of whether the tax is levied on buyers or sellers. In either case, the wedge shifts the relative position of the supply and demand curves. In the new equilibrium, buyers and sellers share the burden of the tax. The only difference between a tax levied on sellers and a tax levied on buyers is who sends the money to the government.

The equivalence of these two taxes is easy to understand if we imagine that the government collects the $0.50 ice-cream tax in a bowl on the counter of each ice-cream store. When the government levies the tax on sellers, the seller is required to place$0.50 in the bowl after the sale of each cone. When the government levies the tax on buyers, the buyer is required to place $0.50 in the bowl every time a cone is bought. Whether the$0.50 goes directly from the buyer’s pocket into the bowl, or indirectly from the buyer’s pocket into the seller’s hand and then into the bowl, does not matter. Once the market reaches its new equilibrium, buyers and sellers share the burden, regardless of how the tax is levied.

case study: Can Congress Distribute the Burden of a Payroll Tax?

If you have ever received a paycheck, you probably noticed that taxes were deducted from the amount you earned. One of these taxes is called FICA, an acronym for the Federal Insurance Contributions Act. The federal government uses the revenue from the FICA tax to pay for Social Security and Medicare, the income support and healthcare programs for the elderly. FICA is an example of a payroll tax, which is a tax on the wages that firms pay their workers. In 2013, the total FICA tax for the typical worker was 15.3 percent of earnings.

Who do you think bears the burden of this payroll tax—firms or workers? When Congress passed this legislation, it tried to mandate a division of the tax burden. According to the law, half of the tax is paid by firms, and half is paid by workers. That is, half of the tax is paid out of firms’ revenues, and half is deducted from workers’ paychecks. The amount that shows up as a deduction on your pay stub is the worker contribution.

Our analysis of tax incidence, however, shows that lawmakers cannot so easily dictate the distribution of a tax burden. To illustrate, we can analyze a payroll tax as merely a tax on a good, where the good is labor and the price is the wage. The key feature of the payroll tax is that it places a wedge between the wage that firms pay and the wage that workers receive.  Figure 8  shows the outcome. When a payroll tax is enacted, the wage received by workers falls, and the wage paid by firms rises. In the end, workers and firms share the burden of the tax, much as the legislation requires. Yet this division of the tax burden between workers and firms has nothing to do with the legislated division: The division of the burden in  Figure 8  is not necessarily 50-50, and the same outcome would prevail if the law levied the entire tax on workers or if it levied the entire tax on firms.

This example shows that the most basic lesson of tax incidence is often overlooked in public debate. Lawmakers can decide whether a tax comes from the buyer’s pocket or from the seller’s, but they cannot legislate the true burden of a tax. Rather, tax incidence depends on the forces of supply and demand.

FIGURE 8 A Payroll Tax

A payroll tax places a wedge between the wage that workers receive and the wage that firms pay. Comparing wages with and without the tax, you can see that workers and firms share the tax burden. This division of the tax burden between workers and firms does not depend on whether the government levies the tax on workers, levies the tax on firms, or divides the tax equally between the two groups.

6-2c Elasticity and Tax Incidence

When a good is taxed, buyers and sellers of the good share the burden of the tax. But how exactly is the tax burden divided? Only rarely will it be shared equally. To see how the burden is divided, consider the impact of taxation in the two markets in  Figure 9 . In both cases, the figure shows the initial demand curve, the initial supply curve, and a tax that drives a wedge between the amount paid by buyers and the amount received by sellers. (Not drawn in either panel of the figure is the new supply or demand curve. Which curve shifts depends on whether the tax is levied on buyers or sellers. As we have seen, this is irrelevant for the incidence of the tax.) The difference in the two panels is the relative elasticity of supply and demand.

Panel (a) of  Figure 9  shows a tax in a market with very elastic supply and relatively inelastic demand. That is, sellers are very responsive to changes in the price of the good (so the supply curve is relatively flat), whereas buyers are not very responsive (so the demand curve is relatively steep). When a tax is imposed on a market with these elasticities, the price received by sellers does not fall much, so sellers bear only a small burden. By contrast, the price paid by buyers rises substantially, indicating that buyers bear most of the burden of the tax.

Panel (b) of  Figure 9  shows a tax in a market with relatively inelastic supply and very elastic demand. In this case, sellers are not very responsive to changes in the price (so the supply curve is steeper), whereas buyers are very responsive (so the demand curve is flatter). The figure shows that when a tax is imposed, the price paid by buyers does not rise much, but the price received by sellers falls substantially. Thus, sellers bear most of the burden of the tax.

The two panels of  Figure 9  show a general lesson about how the burden of a tax is divided: A tax burden falls more heavily on the side of the market that is less elastic. Why is this true? In essence, the elasticity measures the willingness of buyers or sellers to leave the market when conditions become unfavorable. A small elasticity of demand means that buyers do not have good alternatives to consuming this particular good. A small elasticity of supply means that sellers do not have good alternatives to producing this particular good. When the good is taxed, the side of the market with fewer good alternatives is less willing to leave the market and must, therefore, bear more of the burden of the tax.

FIGURE 9 How the Burden of a Tax Is Divided

In panel (a), the supply curve is elastic, and the demand curve is inelastic. In this case, the price received by sellers falls only slightly, while the price paid by buyers rises substantially. Thus, buyers bear most of the burden of the tax. In panel (b), the supply curve is inelastic, and the demand curve is elastic. In this case, the price received by sellers falls substantially, while the price paid by buyers rises only slightly. Thus, sellers bear most of the burden of the tax.

We can apply this logic to the payroll tax discussed in the previous case study. Most labor economists believe that the supply of labor is much less elastic than the demand. This means that workers, rather than firms, bear most of the burden of the payroll tax. In other words, the distribution of the tax burden is far from the 50-50 split that lawmakers intended.

case study: Who Pays the Luxury Tax?

In 1990, Congress adopted a new luxury tax on items such as yachts, private airplanes, furs, jewelry, and expensive cars. The goal of the tax was to raise revenue from those who could most easily afford to pay. Because only the rich could afford to buy such extravagances, taxing luxuries seemed a logical way of taxing the rich.

Yet, when the forces of supply and demand took over, the outcome was quite different from the one Congress intended. Consider, for example, the market for yachts. The demand for yachts is quite elastic. A millionaire can easily not buy a yacht; he can use the money to buy a bigger house, take a European vacation, or leave a larger bequest to his heirs. By contrast, the supply of yachts is relatively inelastic, at least in the short run. Yacht factories are not easily converted to alternative uses, and workers who build yachts are not eager to change careers in response to changing market conditions.

Our analysis makes a clear prediction in this case. With elastic demand and inelastic supply, the burden of a tax falls largely on the suppliers. That is, a tax on yachts places a burden largely on the firms and workers who build yachts because they end up getting a significantly lower price for their product. The workers, however, are not wealthy. Thus, the burden of a luxury tax falls more on the middle class than on the rich.

The mistaken assumptions about the incidence of the luxury tax quickly became apparent after the tax went into effect. Suppliers of luxuries made their congressional representatives well aware of the economic hardship they experienced, and Congress repealed most of the luxury tax in 1993.

“If this boat were any more expensive, we’d be playing golf.”

In both of your diagrams, show the change in the price paid by car buyers and the change in the price received by car sellers.

6-3 Conclusion

The economy is governed by two kinds of laws: the laws of supply and demand and the laws enacted by governments. In this chapter, we have begun to see how these laws interact. Price controls and taxes are common in various markets in the economy, and their effects are frequently debated in the press and among policymakers. Even a little bit of economic knowledge can go a long way toward understanding and evaluating these policies.

In subsequent chapters, we analyze many government policies in greater detail. We examine the effects of taxation more fully and consider a broader range of policies than we considered here. Yet the basic lessons of this chapter will not change: When analyzing government policies, supply and demand are the first and most useful tools of analysis.

Summary

· • A price ceiling is a legal maximum on the price of a good or service. An example is rent control. If the price ceiling is below the equilibrium price, then the price ceiling is binding, and the quantity demanded exceeds the quantity supplied. Because of the resulting shortage, sellers must in some way ration the good or service among buyers.

· • A price floor is a legal minimum on the price of a good or service. An example is the minimum wage. If the price floor is above the equilibrium price, then the price floor is binding, and the quantity supplied exceeds the quantity demanded. Because of the resulting surplus, buyers’ demands for the good or service must in some way be rationed among sellers.

· • When the government levies a tax on a good, the equilibrium quantity of the good falls. That is, a tax on a market shrinks the size of the market.

· • A tax on a good places a wedge between the price paid by buyers and the price received by sellers. When the market moves to the new equilibrium, buyers pay more for the good and sellers receive less for it. In this sense, buyers and sellers share the tax burden. The incidence of a tax (that is, the division of the tax burden) does not depend on whether the tax is levied on buyers or sellers.

· • The incidence of a tax depends on the price elasticities of supply and demand. Most of the burden falls on the side of the market that is less elastic because that side of the market cannot respond as easily to the tax by changing the quantity bought or sold.
